Considered a subfield of computational intelligence focused on combinatorial
optimisation problems, evolutionary computation is associated with systems
that use computational models of evolutionary processes as the key elements
in design and implementation, i.e. computational techniques which are based
to some degree on the evolution of biological life in the natural world. A
number of evolutionary computational models have been proposed, including
evolutionary algorithms, genetic algorithms, the evolution strategy,
evolutionary programming and swarm intelligence. These techniques form the
basis of several disciplines such as artificial life and evolutionary

This conference intends to be a major forum for scientists, engineers and
practitioners interested in the study, analysis, design, modeling and
implementation of evolvable systems, both theoretically and in a broad range
of application fields. ECTA welcomes both theoretical research and practical

The conference also aims to foster hybrid approaches within evolutionary
computation and also involving fuzzy computation and neural computation.


ECTA is part of IJCCI, the 8th International Joint Conference on
Computational Intelligence.

IJCCI 2016 will be held in conjunction with IC3K 2016.


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under
an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. 

SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/) and every
paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). 

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the
SCITEPRESS Digital Library. 

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters
Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier
Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.



The awards will be announced and bestowed at the congress closing session.
